Y2 Autumn Term 2019
Welcome back, we hope you all enjoyed your half term break!
Here’s some information to help you get organised this term:
Please could you help us out by making make sure that names are in your child’s uniform to help stop it getting lost.
Children are welcome to bring a water bottle to school – again please name this so it can be easily identified.
Classes are collected from the yard at 8:25am in order to get into class for 8:30am. Try not to be late as this can be unsettling for your child.
Please bring your PE kit on MONDAY and leave it at school until FRIDAY before taking home to wash. Can you bring your children warmer PE clothes such as jogging bottoms as lessons could be outside.
Children are bringing reading books home please make sure they are brought to school and changed regularly (every day if you can!)
Our learning in Y2 this term:
The children will be learning phonics through Read Write Inc every morning.
In maths the children will be learning to recognise and use symbols for pound and pence. They will be combining amounts to make a particular value and also finding different combinations of coins that equal the same amount.
Our wider curriculum text driver is ‘The Dark’ by Lemony Snicket. We will be using it to learn about the history of The Great Fire of London. This book is one of our core spine readers that is available for children to borrow and read at home.
We will also be learning how objects made from different materials can change shape in Science.
